Parallax - C64 Game Cheats

Game Review & Description

"Parallax," a title that graced the Commodore 64, is a game that might make you question whether you're actually playing a video game or participating in an elaborate psychological experiment designed to test the limits of your patience and reflexes. It's a game that combines shooting, puzzle-solving, and a dash of espionage into a concoction that's as intriguing as it is challenging.

At the heart of "Parallax" is its groundbreaking (for the time) use of parallax scrolling, a technique that gives the illusion of depth by having different layers of background move at different speeds. This was the graphical equivalent of a mic drop in the mid-80s, offering players a taste of what the future of gaming could look like, with visuals that added an immersive quality unmatched by many of its contemporaries.

The game casts you as a scientist-turned-action-hero, a combination as likely as peanut butter and pickles, yet somehow it works. Your mission: infiltrate a series of complexes to disable a doomsday device, all while hacking computers, dodging security, and engaging in a bit of aerial combat for good measure. It's like someone threw "Mission Impossible," "Tron," and "Top Gun" into a blender and pressed the 'puree' button.

"Parallax" is not for the faint-hearted. Its puzzles can be as complex as a Rubik's Cube in a mirror maze, and the combat is as forgiving as a tax auditor. Yet, therein lies its charm. It's a game that doesn't just invite you to beat it; it dares you.

"Parallax" is a journey into a digital labyrinth, filled with danger, mystery, and the occasional moment of "How the heck do I solve this?" It's a testament to the Commodore 64's enduring legacy as a platform for innovation and creativity. So, take a deep breath, fire up your C64, and prepare to lose yourself in one of the most ambitious titles the system has to offer. Remember, in "Parallax," every move, every decision, and every pixel counts.

Parallax Tips and Tricks

For those brave souls ready to don their lab coat and pilot's helmet, here are a few genuine hints and tips to navigate the treacherous waters of "Parallax":

  1. Map It Out: The complexes in "Parallax" are mazes filled with essential items and objectives. Drawing a map or taking notes can help you navigate more effectively and ensure you don't miss anything critical.
  2. Master the Controls: The game's innovative use of parallax scrolling is visually impressive but can be disorienting. Spend time getting used to how movement looks and feels in this layered world to improve your navigation and combat skills.
  3. Hack Wisely: The hacking mini-games are crucial to your progress. Familiarize yourself with how they work and approach them with patience. A rushed hack is often a failed hack.
  4. Conservation is Key: Ammo and fuel are limited, so be conservative with your resources. Engage in combat only when necessary, and keep an eye out for refueling and resupply points.

Infinite Lives (AR)

After loading the game, hit the left button on your Action Replay (or similar) reset cartridge and select "E" from the menu. Then, enter POKE 5796,96 to gain unlimited lives! Hit Return and F3 (or enter SYS0319 if yours is not an AR cart) to return to the game.
